Book a Pilates session with Margaret!
Margaret's passion for health and fitness started since childhood. As a student, she trained as a cross-country runner and competed at interschool level. These days she stays active and always finds time to move her body, whether through Tabata or HIIT workouts, swimming, paddleboarding or just walking.
She was also involved in ballet, and in the early years of her training, Margaret was immediately drawn to Pilates' focus on fluidity and excellence in movement, and quickly fell in love with it. She was amazed at how Pilates added to her strength, flexibility and posture after just a few sessions. After a year of dedicated practice, she decided to train to become an instructor.
Fully-certified in STOTT Pilates Matwork, Reformer, Cadillac, Chairs and Barrels, Margaret is enthusiastic about using its holistic approach that engages the mind’s awareness of the body to help clients lead healthy and active lives. She has completed the Injuries and Special Populations Course and believes that Pilates is a cornerstone of rehabilitation and a tool to strengthen and mobilise the body.
Margaret returned to Singapore after having lived and taught in Australia for several years. She is a mother of two, loves her coffee and is working on taming her sweet tooth.
